The new GR II combines compact dimensions — perfect for snapshot photography on the street — with high-quality, high-resolution images delivered by a large image sensor, equal in size to the one installed on PENTAX digital SLR cameras. It also provides a range of smartphone-support functions, including wireless image transfer and remote shooting.
Developed as the successor to the GR (launched in May, 2013), the GR II inherits the produce concept of the GR series: a perfect balance between exceptional image quality and outstanding portability. It is also the first GR-series model to feature Wi-Fi and NFC (Near Field Communication) functions for easy pairing with smartphones and other mobile devices. It provides outstanding basic specifications, including: a high-performance lens, acclaimed to be the best in GR history; a large, APS-C-size CMOS image sensor; the high-performance GR ENGINE V imaging engine. Its imaging power has been further upgraded by reprogramming the white-balance algorithm to improve the precision of AWB (Auto White Balance) control and fine-tuning the compensation program to prevent high-sensitivity noise. It is designed to accommodate a wider variety of scenes and subjects by adding new creative tools, such as six effect modes and a wireless flash discharge function in combination with an external flash unit.
The GR II provides the user with a choice of two applications to support different purposes or photographic styles: GR Remote is a new GR II-dedicated application that allows easy setting of various commands using a mobile device’s screen, just like on the camera’s LCD panel; and Image Sync, incorporated in PENTAX digital SLR models, makes it easy to transfer recorded images to another device and browse them on its screen.
* The camera’s design and specifications are identical to those of the GR II standard model.
* Measured in compliance to CIPA standards.
New effect modes
* Compatible accessory flash units are AF540FGZ II, AF360FGZ II, AF540FGZ and AF360FGZ.
** This function is available only when the AF button is used, or when the camera is set in Auto shooting mode.
*** This function is available only when the camera is set in Auto shooting mode and in Portrait effect mode.
The GR II captures beautiful Full HD movie clips (1920 x 1080 pixels, 16:9 ratio, 30 frame rate) in the H-264 recording format. By teaming this function with the GR lens and the large image sensor, the GR II assures high-quality movies. During movie recording, the user can also adjust exposure compensation and use the AF button to activate the AF operation, whose speed is faster than before. Three new effect modes (Bright, Portrait and Vibrant) can also be used in movie shooting.
* The size of recorded pixels is fixed at M for the 35mm setting, or at S for the 47mm setting.
